phpBB 3.0.x with patches for Windows Web App Gallery

Post by bibin » Wed Jul 11, 2012 6:30 pm

3.0.10 Patch

Microsoft Open Tech provides these integrated pieces for those community members who need interoperability between PHPBB and Microsoft’s Platform.

Summary of fixes included in the package for the Windows Azure related issues

1. MSSQL Schema is not Windows Azure compatible
  • Comments: Updated the MSSQL schema to adjust SQL Server /SQL Azure functionality differences. Changes are made on \install\schemas\mssql_schema.sql file.
2. SERVER_PORT issue on Windows Azure
3. ACP statistics failing with SQL Azure
  • Comments: ACP statistics is calculating the database size with 'SELECT ((SUM(size) * 8.0) * 1024.0) as dbsize FROM sysfiles'. This will break the phpBB ACP statistics page in Windows Azure because sysfiles is not available in SQL Azure, but we can calculate the database size in SQL Azure using 'SELECT ((SUM(reserved_page_count) * 8.0) * 1024.0) as dbsize FROM sys.dm_db_partition_stats'.
4. Installation schema breaks with ClearDB in Windows Azure Websites
Summary of changes specific to Windows Web Application Gallery

1. Improved user experience with deletion of install directory by including a rminstall.php script that the user will run after completing the app install by clicking on a delete link.
2. Added the code to auto populate the database details in the installation wizard
  • Webmatrix publish and download from remote server will fail if the $dbport parameter is set since this cannot be updated by the web deploy when user publishes PHPBB to a remote server (or Azure )or downloads it from a remote server ( or Azure). To avoid that we had to make phpBB to auto populate the database fields in the phpBB installation wizard.

What is this for exactly, I run a 3.0.12 board, is it a add-on or something, or to fix something. Also, has this been added to the download package of 3.0.12 on phpBB main forums if a fix, has the package been updated to include this?

Hey bibin,

I've taken the liberty to merge your new topic into the already existing topic about the Windows Web App Gallery.

I am sorry, but we are not just going to publish packages built by a third party. In order to achieve your goal I would appreciate if you would

a) ensure there is a ticket for each outstanding problem that the packages generated by us has in our tracker at https://tracker.phpbb.com.

b) submit patches, preferably in form a Github Pull Request, for each outstanding ticket

c) maintain a collection of tickets in this topic's first post (please note that all currently linked tickets seem to have been addressed)

... such that we can ensure the packages we build for 3.0.13 are fully compatibly with Windows Web App Gallery.

You may obtain development builds from https://bamboo.phpbb.com Build Artifacts, direct URL e.g. https://bamboo.phpbb.com/artifact/PHPBB ... .webpi.zip for testing.

Cheers,
bantu

Hi bantu,

Thank you for looking into this.

We have already created tickets for all the issues related to web app gallery. Those details you can find in this topic's first post. We didn't face any new issues in 3.0.12 package while testing in the web app gallery.

Please let me know incase of any queries.

Thanks,
Bibin
